Philadelphia Eagles pick Ed Reynolds: Another Stanford product joins the Bird Gang

Ed Szczepanski-US PRESSWIRE

For the second year in a row, the Eagles picked a Stanford player in the draft

Chip Kelly apparently learned something from his time in the Pac-12: he wants all of the conference's players on his NFL team.

With the 22nd pick of the 5th round, the Eagles picked safety Ed Reynolds, who joins Zach Ertz in green and white.

Scouts had mixed views of Reynolds as a prospect coming into the draft - but their unclear perspectives don't matter now - and he should be right at home on the east coast. Reynolds' father played for both the Patriots and the Giants, so he's somewhat familiar with the tumultuous NFC East already.

Reynolds might be able to compete for a starting spot at the jumbled safety position in Philadelphia, and he's definitely make his mark on special teams this fall. Reynolds may need a bit of an adjustment period to covering NFL wideouts, but he proved he's a capable and aggressibe tackler in 2013, finishing third on the team in tackles.

And in case you're curious: Reynolds had six tackles in the Cardinal's upset win at Autzen in 2012.
